The first stage in improved resort facilities

This development was the largest project contained in the  framework and was the first stage in delivering the Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan to improve access to the resort. The main focus of the project involved the formalisation of the South Cliff Car Park area and construction of a new access road providing the connection of the southern end of the car park to the A165 at the South Cliff Junction. At the head of the scheme is the provision of a bus turning area for a park and ride facility at Belvedere Parade. Further works involve the construction of two roundabouts– The A614 Carnaby / Bridlington Bay Road Junction and A165 / South Cliff Access road junction. In addition to this, Spencer upgraded and realigned the South Cliff Caravan park entrance with improvement works to the lead in access road from the new A165 roundabout.

Driving strong community relations

Spencer maintained excellent relations with local residents and farmers. This included measures in noise control to minimise disruption and helping local farmers by offering soil to fill dips in their fields. Spencer’s ability to manage environmental control was vital to the success of working around the ecology of the seafront and sand dunes.
